Here are just a few email and texts we received on returning from 2 excellent weeks in Vilamoura with two County PGA’s and 40 teams:

Just a little note to say how much my wife (the only lady) and I enjoyed your superbly run Notts pro Am. The courses started superb and improved every day. We were blessed with the weather and finishing amongst the prizes was a bonus. For the first time ever whilst on holiday Julie didn’t want to go home. Can’t wait for next year.😀😀 see you soon. All the best

Hello Mark,
Just to say thankyou for once again putting on an excellent event in Villamoura. Ragardless of the weather there was a great atmosphere amongst all the teams along with some good golf (and not so good), which was to be expected due to some challenging conditions.
I look forward to seeing you soon.

Mark, Just want to say Thankyou so much for being such an amazing support to my PGA golf and I would never have come this far without you making me feel so welcome in every event.
I never expected to win couldn’t be happier. Zoe ⛳x

No doubt see you some time during the winter.

Winter Series 2016/17

Hi Mark

Just wanted to write to you to personally to thank you again for arranging such a wonderful trip.

I got into golf a few years ago and it has since become somewhat of an obsession. I had never played golf abroad before this trip, however had seen the photographs which gave me big expectations that this trip and the golf was going to be amazing.

Well my expectations were exceeded, everything was fantastic from start to finish. The range of golf courses, meticulous planning, information, weather, the list is endless. I appreciate all the hard work and effort that goes into making these events, to end up overall winners going into the last day 1 point behind was the icing on the cake.

We played our hearts out as a team, Phil had set us a target of 22 under so that’s what we were focused on achieving. Got a few long putts, 4 7 point holes on the back nine sealed the win. Win or lose I had one of the best weeks of my life and much is down to you.

Thank you Mark, thanks to the Notts PGA and best of luck for this week.

Yours gratefully,

Kevin Taylor

Notts PGA Overseas Pro Am 2017

I just wanted to write you a quick email to say thank you for yesterday.
Although my golf was terrible, seem to have lost my swing for the day, I really enjoyed my day.
The organisation of the event was fantastic – I was most pleased that everything just flowed and there was no slow play. I think you and your wife did a fantastic job and I will look forward to entering more of the events.


February Winter Series

A huge thanks to Mark at Golfingdays and The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club for a great day and a great event. The Course was in magnificent condition and to win £500 in vouchers is a huge bonus. Looking forward to February’s event already.


Andrew Keller

Thanks, the whole event, hospitality, course, club and company were excellent. Winning was a bonus and I cannot wait to come back and play again – the whole experience was awesome and rates as the best golf trip I have ever experienced. Thank you for hosting us, and we now have quite a few clamouring to come along and play. As the saying goes “if Carlsberg made golf clubs…”.

If ever you are down our way (West Country), Simon and I will only be too pleased to take you round our course, it is enjoyable but not up to Renaissance standards.

Thanks again.


Thomas and I would like to thank you for a great day out again, and this time it was extra special as Thomas won!
We’d also like to say how well the events were organised and an extra thanks for the bananas!
We’re looking forward to next year.
Kind regards,
Thomas and Mark

Hi Mark and Richard, I would like to thank you for the day. It was great experience for us and for Alex. I hope all goes well and the final and the future of golfing days over exceeds your expectations. Marcela Hogenova
Thanks Junior Golfingdays
Was going to do a similar note to you Mark. Thanks for organising a great social and golfing event, and to align it with Rose winning the US open – ‘Pure Genius’!
It may have to be an early night to recover tonight, but the good news is i thoroughly enjoyed it
Thanks again Mark, and all ‘team Awesome’ for a great couple of days
